I decided to try and control my diabetes with just diet and exercise. Lost 150 pounds in 8 months, and am technically no longer diabetic. I am proud of myself, but was shocked at the huge amount of hate I receive from the people I love. My parents say that I am anti-social and stuck up for not eating with them. My husband looks at me and breaks into tears. He fears I will leave him, and is nothing but mean. I have ZERO friends now. I get looks of disgust from co-workers ... and I am maintaining 150 pounds. I am not tiny or anything. The hate makes me depressed, I wish I can be fat and happy again.
